Miley Cyrus Is As Damp As She Is Dramatic in Her VMAs ‘Slide Away’ Performance

The only thing more powerful than Miley Cyrus’s vocals on her 2019 MTV VMAs version “Slide Away” is whatever skin-safe petroleum jelly they completely coated the singer. At Monday night’s show, Miley staged a dramatic black-and-white tableau in front an orchestra, making for a very ’90s, very Calvin Klein, very moist performance her new single. Just to be clear: we’re teasing, and sounds incredible. Plus, if she wants to slide away back to the ocean like she suggests, Miley honestly just needs to make a running start and she’ll be half way to the Jersey Shore from the Newark Prudential Center in minutes.
